*Strasbourg/Angelo Marcopolo/-
As it was Already Voted and Adopted by the EuroMetropole of Strasbourg Citizens' Assembly, on "Eurofora"s proposal, in the context of French President Emmanuel Macron's "Great Debate" as early as since 2019 (*), it's also an EU-Wide Polls from the End of 2020, just fully Published by EU Parliament and Commission on 2021, at the Eve of the Launch of EU's landmark "Conference on the Future of Europe" (2021-2022), scheduled on "Europe"'s Day, 9 May, here, (with Speeches from Presidents Macron, Sassoli, and Other Officials), and, precisely, on the Anniversary of the Historic Victory against Nazism, which opened an Era officialy based on Peace, Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law throughout Europe, (also with the Creation of the CoE, 72 Years earlier, since 1949, etc), revealed that an UnExpected, Huge Majority of EU Citizens seem to practicaly Back the Main Idea of a Previous Interaction, Between EU Citizens and Decision-Makers, before Measures affecting their Lives and/or Society at large might be taken...

- Total or Partial Agreement with such a stance was reportedly Endorsed by 91% or 92% of the People consulted.


- The Key-point was Not Elections, but "Decisions" taken by Public Authorities.


- It was clear that relevant Action should be taken mainly Before Decisions, (and Not  Afterwards).


- The Concrete Content of what exactly should be done by the Public Authorities was Not Specified, leaving a kind of Discretionary Choice for the most Adequate Moves, almost as in "Eurofora"'s proposal.


- But it was obvious that this concerned the Public Decision-Making Process, including some kind of Exchange or Dialogue, between Politicians and Citizens, ("take into Account Citizens' Voice").


- The possibility of a Legal Control by a Judge was left Open, as in "Eurofora"'s project, (where it may play a notable potential role).


- Ibid, for possible Legal (and Not Only Political) Sanctions, in case of Abuse.  


- The Integration and development of such Mechanisms in the System of  nowadays European Societies appears quite Easy, given the Availability of relevant contemporary Tools. 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   
- Curiously, that Poll was made between October and November 2020, But wasN't fully Published before May 2021 !


(+Etc.)

(Opinion).

 In Democracy, the forthcoming choices for EU's Top Jobs, as the New EU Parliament's President, new EU Commission's President (+ probably EU Council's President, EU Foreign Minister, etc) should be made according to EU Citizens' Votes in June 7, 2009 European Elections, and main EU Governments' strategic policies.

At the heart of the biggest EU Countries, in France and Germany, EU Citizens clearly voted for a renovated, non-technocratic but Political Europe based on Values, declared explicitly incompatible with Turkey's controversial EU bid.

This main choice was also supported in several other small or medium EU Countries, such as Austria (cf. promise of a Referendum), Spain (cf. EPP program's reservations vis a vis Enlargment), etc., while EPP Parties won also in Poland, Hungary, Cyprus, etc.

In other Countries, whenever Governing coalitions didn't make these choices or eluded them, continuing to let a Turkish lobby push for its entry into the EU, they paid a high price, and risked to damage Europe, by obliging EU Citizens to massively vote for euro-Sceptics whenever they were the only ones to offer a possibility to promise  real change and oppose Turkey's demand to enter into the EU :

It's for this obvious reason that British UKIP (IndDem) succeeded now (after many statements against Turkey's EU bid) to become Great Britain's 2nd Party, unexpectedly growing bigger even than the Governing Labour Party, as well as the Liberal party  ! Facts prove that it's not an isolated phenomenon : A similar development occured in the Netherlands, where Geert Wilders "Party for Freedom" (PVV) became also the 2nd biggest in the country, (after EPP), boosting the chances of a politician who had withdrawn in 2004 from an older party "because he didn't agree with their position on Turkey". And in several other EU Member Countries, even previously small parties which now focused on a struggle against Turkey's controversial demand to enter in the EU, won much more or even doubled the number of their MEPs (fex. Bulgaria, Hungary, Greece, etc).

On the contrary, whenever Socialist and oher parties were explicitly or implicitly for Turkey's controversial EU bid, they obviously lost Citizens' votes and fell down to an unprecedented low.

In consequence, EU Citizens clearly revealed their main political choices, in one way or another : They voted to change for less Bureaucracy, but more Politics and Values in a Europe really open to EU Citizens, but without Turkey's controversial EU bid.

Recent political developments are obviously different from the old political landscape which existed in the Past of 1999-2004, when Socialists based on Turkish 1% vote governed undisputed not only in Germany, but also in the UK, Greece and elsewhere, France followed old policies decided when it had been divided by "cohabitation", before the 3 "NO" to EU  Referenda since May 2005, before Merkel, before Sarkozy, etc.... before the surprises of 7 June 2009 new EU Elections.

If the current candidates to the Top EU jobs promise and guarantee to respect People's democratic choices, OK.

Otherwise, Europe must find new candidates, really motivated and able to implement these democratic choices of the People.

The beginning of crucial, final Decisions are scheduled for the 1st EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, in the middle of July, and they could be completed towards the October session, when Lisbon Treaty's fate will have been fixed.
